Will United sign Ten Hag?

Rio Ferdinand says Jonny Evans and Casemiro should not be at Man United in a damning assessment of the club’s recent recruitment.

Over the past few transfer windows – the Board have brought some experienced players to Old Trafford in hope that they could improve on the third placed finish of last season.

However – there has been a number of poor performances in that Manchester United shirt this season and after the Red Devils had one of their worst finishes in the League in recent memory.

And Ferdinand has claimed that two of those players – Evans and Casemiro – should not be at the club: ‘Jonny Evans, really, no disrespect – I love him – but really he shouldn’t even be there,’ Ferdinand told Five.

‘Really, if you’re looking at Man United being a progressive club [he shouldn’t be there]. But he’s come in and probably been their best centre-back this season. And now you’ve got Casemiro playing there, just filling gaps, and respect to him for doing that, to put himself out there to do it.

‘We’ve got players going on free transfers who have cost us a fortune in wages and transfer fees.’ Ferdinand continued.

‘And we’ve got players still sitting there with one year left on their deals who are going to probably just see them out and we’ll get nothing for them.

‘I can’t remember off the top of my head, but there’s about six or seven players who are on one year left on their deals and are going to just sit there and smoke it up, chill. The recruitment in and out has been poor.

‘We can’t get rid of players, do you know why? Because on the way in their get given astronomical contracts that are above market value and that no-one else will pay if it goes wrong. So they sit there.

‘Harry Maguire is a good example. West Ham wanted him, they’re willing to pay him half what he was earning at Manchester United, but Harry Maguire [says no]. I’d be the same. What do you mean go and get half? And uproot my family? No thanks.’
